HI , My gopro Hero5 when i want to view the clips using the camera . It will be super laggy that it hang(i think it hang cos I have to restart the camera)

to view it thru the aps on my iphone is even worst. 
IT may or might link and the downloading process will take so long , either the phone or the camera will run out of battery life. 
and the camera will get super hot in this process . Is that normal ? 

 

I use the xd card as stated . 


Was wondering is this normal ?

if it is any way to overcome this issue cos its tiring to wait till I synch to my laptop to view only to realise the photo/vedio is not to what i thought it would be . 

 

Thank you

Re: FIrst time user to Gopro Hero5

thank you.  that is a good card lets  take all the stuff save it to a  computer, then do this.

 

Format the card as shown wil ltake 3 minutes then do a quick and then do it in the camera. once you did all that. the problem may clear if not report back.

Re: FIrst time user to Gopro Hero5

glad you  go it resolved.     some high fives would be appreciated.   remember to once in a blue moon to fully format, not all the time and always format after each  camera use and new day filming after you dump and save footage takes 30 seconds   done.

 

PEACE  FISH

"I use the xd card as stated"
Specifically what SD card (make/model/size)?

Re: FIrst time user to Gopro Hero5

Seems some of hte issues that you  are having  is :

 

The gopro will   always take time to download to a smartphone  wirelessly, and through a usb.  The camera gets hot coz the card is working and buffering and making gopro heat up.  If you use the camera and  computer  and transfer your files things run smoother if IF you are  par on with your system.   Like said  you used a card  that is recommended. you used wiify ttansfer,  etc. etc..

match your card to this list then get back to @danielr15  he may  take the time to explain  to you why that card is not going to  be top notch.
